Last night's sunset and the SUN...it's going to be HOT!
Last night's sunset was a treat that's beauty partly caused by a fire on the Olypmics. The cooler evenings are a welcome relief following our recent hot temps.
Speaking of HOT, the National Weather Service has issued a HEAT WARNING through 10:00 p.m. Monday evening. Note: early the NWS had issued a "heat advisory" which has been reduced to a "warning". Either way, with temps in the mid to upper 90's--it's hot for us sensitive Seattle-ites who are typically never seem completely happy with the weather ("it's too hot" or "it's too cold").
With ongoing temps in the 90s, it's a good idea to check on neigbhors and make sure you don't have any pets trapped in garages or storage sheds.
From the National Weather Service:
